when they're seniors. and i don't know. >> all right, everyone. listening to joe biden with the talking points there. he first went after representative paul ryan the gop vice-presidential candidate and his budget proposals. that said he's also going after medicare. given the demographic makeup of the sunshine state, which has a large already older population, it becomes no surprise that the latest polls show the president with a lead in the sunshine state. now at the same time paul ryan is campaigning himself in new hampshire today. the republican vice-presidential nominee met with voters in the city of derry just a short time ago. >> all these promises were made in the idea of hope and change. and people -- it sounded pretty good. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old ideas that have failed time and again. >> as for mitt romney, he spent some time in pennsylvania on friday. and despite trailing the president as much as ten points in some polls, governor romney made this bold prediction. >> it is an honor to be here with you and to be here

egyptians who heard vice-president joe biden declared that hosni mubarak was a democrat in the julian assange was a high-tech terrorist. it is disrespectful to the dead and to be incarcerated of bringing costs uprising to claim the united states supported the forces for change. that is indeed audacity. who can say it is not audacious to the president's concern to appear to look leaderly, look back on this change, the people's change, and tries to call it his own. we can take hours because it means the white house has seen this progress is inevitable. in this season of progress, the president has seen which way the wind is blowing. and he must pretend it is his in ministration who made it below. >> wikileaks founder julian assange addressing a side meeting of the u.n. general assembly wednesday night. for more, we're joined by michael ratner, legal advisor to julian assange and wikileaks. welcome to "democracy now!" talk about what he said and also this latest information that has come out under the freedom of information act that suggests the u.s. may be looking at julian assange as a

the campaign trail of the weekend, they are leaving it to the running mates including joe biden in the fort myers, florida with what he thinks the campaign is all about. >> this country is facing the starkest choice for president that we have faced at least in my memory. now that governor mitt romney has made it official and he has picked paul ryan, they are both decent man. i do not need your boos. i need your help. i want to be straight with the. [applause] i have a bad reputation of being straight and telling you what i think. sometimes all of what i think. all kidding aside, in taking paul ryan, what gov. romney did is he has given clear definition to all of those vague assertions he was making during his primary campaign. he talked a lot about a lot of the things paul ryan is talking about, but never in any detail. by laying out why he was picking paul ryan, he picked paul ryan because paul bryant represents the ideological -- the center of the republican party. host: the vice president yesterday. the question is, arthur party is still relevant? when the walker has this-- wendy walker
schedule today. vice-president biden is in north carolina in charlotte and asheville. news from the campaign trail from ohio. they are beginning their early voting in ohio. also in pennsylvania. a judge halted the enforcement i.d.at state's voter law. the president is in henderson, nevada. mitt romney prepping at a denver hotel. this is what they had to say about the debate. >> now, you may have heard that in a few days my opponent in this election and i are going to have a debate. i'm looking forward to it. i know folks from the media are speculating on who will have the best zingers. >> you are. >> i do not know about that. who will put the most points on the board. governor romney is a good debater. i'm just ok. what i'm concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hard-working americans. that's what people will be listening for. that is the debate that you deserve. >> you will get some visitors this week. there is a lot of interest surrounding the debate. people want to know who will win. there w
appearances and attacks before the debate are being handed off to the number twos. paul ryan and joe biden hit the trial while their bosses brush up. >> and while this first debate is focused primarily on domestic issues, foreign policy is playing a much larger role out in the campaign trail. especially in the wake of the attack on the consulate in libya. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >>> and we're learning more about that attack on the american consulate last month. months earlier, a team of american special forces went in to asty in benghazi. they also reportedly trained local militias in protecting the consulate. while the state department then became responsible for security there, but never put in a request to the pentagon for more protection. this comes as the white house is rejecting calls for ambassador susan wright to resign for saying that the attacks were sparked by the offensive antes-muslim film. >>> it is 7:22. we will tell you why it is a little more pricey in the district for food. and why you have to pay. >>> and christmas is months away but it is shaping up to be a b
gore or joe biden have charitable contributions of $350 per year. i would not think you could argue that mitt romney has gotten p too muchuffy press. i think his interview on "six"the minutes was pretty good. they ask what your idea of leadership was in that as a nice generic question. i need spirit -- i think there needs to be substantive questions as well. host: i want to make sure that the folks see this a -- in "the washington post" last wemple reported thisric -- guest: there is a danger in a candidate talking about the media bias. the media of will turn around and say you are losing. this is a lot of what we have seen in the last couple of weeks. there was an associated press report that said romney is struggling to exert his influence in the poll. you don't want to get across the idea of losing but this is what happens. the media runs with a poll they are taking and they treat the race like it is over. we are in september. that's what i don't like. people should let this election process conclude before they say is so host: over. next up is silver spring, maryland, go ahead.
. it is my understanding, for example that in 2008, the one vice presidential debate between biden and pailin drew more interest than other debates. i guess because people were wondering what kailyn was going to do. and i mentioned the one in 1998 between bentsen and quayle. there are other cases of dramatic moments as well. we should definitely pay attention to the vice- presidential debate as well. host: robert in queens, new york. republican line, good morning. caller: if the mainstream media were to cover this in a normal fashion like they should, do you think people would pay attention? there are a lot of people but do not know this exists. there were only 45 seconds of the transcript from what i understand. i just like to know how you feel the election would be assuming the mainstream media were to cover things like this. it is definitely not on any front page of any paper today and i believe it is front-page news. host: and just for some context talking about this obama video, it says it was billed as a bombshell. guest: some republicans might say this is the from the answer to the 47%
